GIFT is delivering on our mission to inspire girls and prevent the development of gender bias in several ways:
1. School Speaker Series – Quarterly, free, live-streamed speaker series for elementary schools nationwide to introduce, popularize and normalize powerful and accomplished women across a spectrum of disciplines. Speakers are chosen for their motivational and educational potential for our audience and will come from Entertainment, STEAM, Academia, Sports, Government, Media and others. Examples of potential speakers are Nobel Prize winners, Olympic Medalists, prominent figures from government or popular culture, philanthropists and similarly accomplished individuals. These events are for boys and girls.
Inspire children to strive for lofty goals; Reduce the development of gender bias in children ages 5-11
2. Live Events for Girls – GIFT will sponsor quarterly, on-location events to inspire young girls through interaction with high profile and/or visionary individuals. In this forum, the presenter will share inspirational aspects of her journey, invite questions from the GIFT membership and lead professional demonstrations, studio, university and key location visits. In person attendance will be determined by venue size with wider audience participation included via interactive live-streaming to the GIFT website.
Inspire girls to achieve their full potential
3. Education & Follow-up – The GIFT children’s website is poised to be an educational portal for girls to learn more about GIFT speakers and accomplished women throughout history. Age-appropriate materials will also be provided for exploration of industry related content in support of events.
Educate girls about strong, successful women – past and present
